Designed to look like a New England-style home, the structure appears as if it could topple over at any moment. Yes – it’s art. Yes – it’s meant to question our understanding of reality. But thanks to the engineers that worked with Suh for years, it’s also safe and perfectly livable (that is, livable as long as you’re not prone to bouts of vertigo). In fact you can go visit the home and walk around inside.
This marriage of art and construction twists and bends the mind’s understanding of what is possible. According to Suh: “When you see a fallen star, it means that it fell from the sky from a different universe,” he explains. “It’s something that’s very out of context.”
